I am so glad you will be recuperating at home so you can breathe the summer air and see all your beloved critters.

The cast came off my arm yesterday, and I was kind of expecting to see a white shrivelled looking arm, but instead it's swollen and lumpy and it hurts. They sent me out with a stupid triangular bandage to support it, that was as useful as a chocolate tea pot, so I bought a brace, and that feels so much better, I can take it off to exercise it, or to wash, or when resting, but will wear it while using it for a week or two I think. Last night I wrapped with a polo bandage, that worked really well to keep it comfortable overnight .

The horrible figure eight shoulder brace has to stay a couple more weeks, just to make sure that the clavicle has set for sure, he is very impressed, with how it has done, and is just playing safe!

The broken ribs are still really painful, Oh to be able to have a full nights sleep, rather than a bunch of two hour instalments, and sleeping flat would be a huge bonus. This is taking so much longer than I thought, very frustrating, but progress is being made.

Progress is a good thing! How are you doing mentally? I know it was a scary event all in all. We are here praying still.

I like that Your humour is back.

Recover soon and get back to doing the things you love!

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

Wouldn't it be nice to wake up one morning and TA-DA! All healed!? From what I hear from those with rib fractures, they are the worst. It would be nice if you didn't have to breath, laugh or move.
Sounds like you are making progress though. : )

Glad to hear that you are getting better, even though it is frustratingly slow.

be sure to eat well, i.e, lots of fresh fruit and veggies, as it will help the healing process.

Sounds weird but have you tried folding a blanket a little and then putting it under your back to sleep?

Weird I know but I did that both yes I had broken ribs and I was actually able to sleep on my back....not all night but for a few good solid hours lol


Hope you keep healing quick!!!
